Commitment to Excellence

Thanks to everyone that submitted nominations for our Commitment to Excellence award! Say congratulations to the winners and check out all of our honorable mentions!

WINNER: Jenny Wall - Labor & Delivery

We have a SUPERSTAR on our unit. Her name is JENNY WALL. She literally shines! Her smile and excitement is felt with every interaction she has with co-workers and patients. Her many post-partum patients have raved (during management/patient rounding) about the GREAT care Jenny gives. They mention how they all feel like they are her only patient on the unit, even when they know we are very busy. Jenny also has been a ROCK STAR at onboarding new employee’s and ensuring that each new member had a great experience which has helped create a better retention percentage on L&D. She takes the time to explain processes as well as evaluate and observe for understanding. Her many trainees have reported how wonderful of a preceptor she is. She also is one of our teams HCAPS representatives and we appreciate all she does for us!

She is now in 2021 training to be a Labor nurse and we all have full confidence that she will be outstanding in that new role as well.

FIRST RUNNER-UP: Felicia Hall - Pocatello ENT

Felicia Hall is very deserving of this. She currently works full time at the Pocatello ENT clinic. I know she is navigating through additional challenges but you would never know it. She is committed to this job and is currently training our new CMA. The feedback I have received is she is doing great in that task. She is willing to do whatever tasks are asked of her as she was recently asked to change providers which added to her responsibilities. Never once did she complain or oppose this idea. She is very deserving of this.

Commitment to Excellence

Shout Outs

The last quarter of 2020 was quite challenging in our department due to being down several individuals but needing to continue to perform the same tasks. This meant taking a number of extra shifts, and often on short notice. This team rose to the challenge and performed without complaint, even though this was often at the expense of their work/life balance and personal health.

Gina simply amazes me. Over the past 3 years, she has earned my respect, love, and gratitude. Gina is hands down one of our MVP’s in the business office. Her knowledge and expertise are critical to the insurance denials department, and to the entire business office. She is the glue to our denials team, and we would be truly lost without her daily guidance. Gina has taken the new billing system, the new hospital, new clinics, and the pandemic all in stride. She has led us by example to remain steadfast and positive, especially when times are tough. She is a committed employee. In addition to all those recent hurdles and on top of her normal duties, Gina has personally trained over 20 people in the past 2 years! She handles the constant questions without ever snapping or belittling someone. What an amazing amount of patience she must have! We have all grown in our knowledge because of her everyday efforts. I truly appreciate her!

I nominate Trudy White. She is always smiling and making the office a happier place.  She is always courteous and kind to everyone she talks to.

I wanted to give a shout out to Morgan! I am preparing for nursing school and needed some vaccines. Morgan is the similitude of customer service as he got back to me immediately and got me in the next day for vaccines. He went through my paperwork meticulously to make sure I had it all worked out and even did my physical for me to save me time and money. Morgan is also at the front lines of the COVID pandemic and totally kept his cool when receiving several calls, while he was drawing my blood. He never lost his composure, and never lost his smile. Morgan is amazing! Give him a pat on the back and let him know his example is one to emulate. 

I would like to nominate Morgan Garriott for the commitment to Excellence award this quarter. He really has gone above and beyond this year with all of the COVID protocol. I have been able to call him with questions and he always gets back to me very quickly. It has been very nice to have him to reach out to for questions about what staff should be doing if they have symptoms during this pandemic. He has definitely been great to work with!
